King's Grant on the Ashley, est. 1970 – September 2005


HOMEOWNER’S MEETING

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH

7:00 P.M.

FT. DORCHESTER HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA

 

PRESENTATION FROM THE TOWN OF SUMMERVILLE

 

ANNEXATION???

 

You asked for it – you got it.  Many of you have shown a great amount of concern since the annexation of the golf course property into North Charleston.  Great concern has been continuously expressed to the Board.  In turn, John Atkinson was asked to contact the Town of Summerville concerning the possibility of annexation into the town.  The process requires us to have 75% of the homeowners sign a petition for annexation.  Further, this process would involve the town homes as they are needed to make us contiguous with the course side of King’s Grant since the annexation of the course. 

 

With this meeting set, North Charleston will be alert to our activities therefore there may be an additional push from North Charleston to entice you into joining their city.  We have already been contacted by one resident who has stated in “fairness” to the City of North Charleston we should allow them to speak also.  If there is one of you who wish to lead an effort for North Charleston annexation – you have the right to do so.

 

The Board is not saying annex.  That is your decision as individual homeowners.  The Board is suggesting strongly however that you attend this meeting in order to make an educated decision.

 

Lynn V. Whitner – President - KGHOA

 

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

 

Despite what the Summerville Journal Scene published on Friday, August 19th – there is/was no meeting on August 26th.  That deadline was for our attorneys to provide the judge with a timeline for the discovery process.  Further, September 14th will not be an “Adversary Proceeding” hearing.  The week of August 22nd, the club ceased operations.  They have asked to be allowed to borrow additional money in order to maintain the insurance on the property.  Discovery will take place on or about December 1st.  After the discovery period, the judge will set a date for the hearing, which is expected to be the first of next year.  The Board will continue to strive to keep you accurately informed when the time comes.

Lynn V. Whitner – President - KGHOA

King's Grant Golf Tournament

 

We are in the early stages of planning a golf tournament this fall to raise money for the legal fund.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR HELP FROM EVERYONE TO ASSIST IN MAKING THIS TOURNAMENT A SUCCESS!!

Can you join our committee to help plan the tournament?

Do you work somewhere or own your own company that would be willing to sponsor a hole or donate a gift worth $100+ to the silent auction?

Do you have friends or family that work for a company that would be willing to sponsor a hole or donate a gift to the silent auction?

Would you like to sign up as a player or put together a foursome to play in the tournament?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, you could really play a part in making this tournament a success!

We will have a date set in the next week for an afternoon tournament with a silent auction and cookout/bbq to follow.

The majority of this neighborhood is opposed to any development of our golf course, so I know we should be willing to come together to plan this tournament, and have a little fun in the meantime while raising money to save our course!  

 

A flier will be sent out once our date is set to encourage everyone to take part.  Please call me if you can help on the committee or have sponsorship or gift ideas!

LUNCH BUNCH: 

On July 27th, thirty-two ladies met together at Belle’s House of Pizza Greek and Italian Restaurant in the Galleria Shopping Center in Summerville.  The food was good and the company, including six friends from Coosaw Creek, was fun as we ate from the menu and chatted away for a while.  Thanks to Nelle Ashby, a new consultant with Lillian Vernon’s Celebrations division, for presenting an opportunity to do some shopping after lunch.  The Celebrations division carries the personalized items that are so popular, with items from soccer bags to lap throws to ice bins and holiday decorating items. (They also carry a little girl’s “dress-up” trunk just full of items perfect for a rainy afternoon’s play day indoors.)  In addition, Nelle has pledged all of her profits from now until the end of 2005 to the King’s Grant legal fund.  Nelle presented a check for $80.00 from the gathering to President Lynn Whitner during the August community meeting.  Also, Nelle’s bonus items – children’s backpacks – were donated to go along with the school supplies collected at the lunch meeting.  If you would like to see a catalog or book a party, please give Nelle a buzz at 871-5130.  It’s 100 degrees in the shade now, but Christmas will be here before we know it!!  Have fun shopping and help the legal fund at the same time.

            Thanks to all the ladies for the donation of basic school supplies that have been donated to teachers in King’s Grant and to the Children in Crisis organization.

            On August 24th, we will try out another new restaurant, Wing Time, in the Festival Centre at the corner of Dorchester and Ashley Phosphate. 

            Lunch Bunch meets the 4th Wednesday of each month January through October.  If you ever get the urge to join us and are not on the call list, please contact Toni Weaver at 871-4227.  We’d love to have you join us!!  There is no “membership” to join and lunch is Dutch treat.  It’s just an opportunity to get together with neighbors, eat and gab.  If you’re new in the neighborhood, it is a perfect opportunity to meet ladies from all over the subdivision and if you’re an “old-timer”, it is just the place to catch up with goings-on in the neighborhood.
